Heather Graham Talks Fifty Shades Of Grey & Hangover III: ‘Something Good Happens To Jade’

Heather Graham will return to the “Hangover” for the third installment of the popular franchise next year, and while the actress is sworn to secrecy on plot points, she says positive happenings are in store for her stripper-with-a-heart-of-gold character, Jade.

“Something good happens to me in [‘The Hangover Part III’],” she revealed to Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Wednesday’s Access Hollywood Live. “So, it’s good to know that something good happens to Jade!”

The stunning actress, 41, couldn’t expound much on the details of the Bradley Cooper/Ed Helms led film as she said her “Hangover” bosses are “so top secret,” but did reveal that her little bundle of on-screen joy will make his return as well.

“The baby’s back,” she said, referencing her character’s son, Tyler, who was nicknamed “Carlos” by Zach Galifianakis’ Alan in the 2009 hit.

In addition to reprising her role as Jade, Heather will soon be seen on the big screen playing porn director Margaret alongside Dev Patel and James Franco in “About Cherry.”

While her character is a lesbian, Heather said she did a lot of research for the role, and would describe the porn her character films as “vanilla,” thanks to knowledge she gleaned from reading E L James’ erotic “Fifty Shades” trilogy.

“I thought [‘Fifty Shades of Grey’] was fun. Like, it’s silly, but it’s fun, and I think it’s cool that women are reading about sex,” she said. “Why shouldn’t women have their sexual fun reading this book?”

Adding, “I read all three!”

“About Cherry” hits select theaters on Friday.
